Professor emeritus Andrew Reschovsky briefed members of the Nebraska Legislature’s revenue and education committees about property taxation and school funding.

“‘Nebraska really has a good public finance system,’ that avoids some of the worst pitfalls experienced by other states, Reschovsky told lawmakers. However, he said, ‘no tax system is without its problems,’” the Lincoln Journal Star reported.

Reschovsky is an expert on tax policy and intergovernmental fiscal relations. He is is a fellow at the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy, a think tank in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
